Dive down under the seas and visit the Mermaid Queen in her natural habitat – with a little help from RTG of course. This is one of the older games from this developer, so be prepared for a more antiquated experience from a visual point of view, because the graphics are dated. That’s not the whole story though, so keep reading.
Upon the reels, you’ll see symbols that start with standard playing card additions. Then comes a necklace made out of seashells as well as a red fish swimming through coral. A huge boat comes next as a symbol, while the merman appears as the highest paying standard symbol of the game. This one is able to provide a maximum pay-out of 7,500x your in-play stake.
The layout of Mermaid Queen consists of a standard five reels and three rows, and across this design RTG has added a set of 20 pay lines for you to place your wagers on. Yet, if you find this to be too many, you can reduce the active number with the relevant up and down arrow buttons. You can also change the amount that you bet, with Mermaid Queen allowing you to place wagers of between 1p and 10p per active pay line. This means that the maximum overall wager possibility in it stands at £2 per spin.
Looking at the layout of the game, you’ll see a jackpot total on display at the top of the reels. This total will increase whenever someone places a bet on the Mermaid Queen game. Furthermore, you can win this amount at any time. So, regardless of how much you’re betting, you still stand a chance of being a big jackpot winner. You don’t even have to form a specific winning combination, just continue spinning the reels and it could pay out.
This slot’s wild symbol is represented by the Mermaid Queen herself. She is able to appear on reels one, three and five only, but she will substitute for all other standard symbols to assist you with forming winning combinations. The only symbol that this one won’t substitute for is the scatter addition. Not only that, but the wild is responsible for triggering the slot’s free spins round, too.
If you manage to spin one of the wild symbol onto each of the first, third and fifth reels, you’ll be rewarded with a total of 10 free spins. Should a scatter symbol appear during this round, it will add an extra free spin to your current total. Throughout the entirety of the initial 10 free spins, all prizes are doubled, while additional free spins see a multiplier of 3x come into play. Free spins can also be re-triggered.
The scatter symbol that exists within Mermaid Queen is that of the purple clam shell. Scatters can show up anywhere and will multiply your stake without needing to be on a winning pay line.
Five of them coming into view will provide a multiplier of 200x to your bet.
Mermaid Queen is definitely one of those games that has been slightly forgotten in the shuffle of RTG slots. Yet, if you do decide to load it up, you’ll still find it to be quite the entertaining offering from the brand. With decent enough graphics, inclusive free spins, a wild, scatter and progressive jackpot, it’s got a lot of qualities to entice you with.
